Foodpoisoning and Cancer

Öffentlicher Abendvortrag von Professor Dr. Jacques Neefjes im Rahmen der Vortragsreihe „Molekulare Grundlagen des Lebens" im Studienjahr 2017/18


Bacterial pathogens are usually not considered as carcinogens. We will show that and how Salmonella typhi induces gallbladder carcinoma, especially in India. As a consequence of these experiments we tested whether salmonellosis after food poisoning could also contribute to colon cancer in the Western World, using a nationwide epidemiological study. These data will be presented as well.

Jacques Neefjes is a leading international researcher in cellular immunology. He studies how cells regulate the immune system and communicate that they are infected. Jaques Neefjes has thought of new techniques to make reactions in cells visible and to manipulate them so that he can track processes in healthy and diseased cells. His approach is highly original and multidisciplinary, and many of his findings have already found their way into clinical applications

Moderation: Professor Dr. Ulrike Seifert
